Team Jamison defeats Team 212, 73-59

By Mark Carroll - Blog Coordinator

After losing in an overtime heart-breaker on Thursday night, Team Jamison looked to defeat C.J. Wilkerson and Team 212 to get back on the right track.

Wilkerson came out with an impressive first quarter, scoring his first points on an old-fashioned three point play and following it with four successful free throw attempts. Team Jamison scored several buckets on their own at the other end, including a two-handed slam by Duke's Miles Plumlee. Seth Curry, Plumlee's teammate from Duke, did not appear to be phased by his struggles from three point range on Thursday night, as he hit a deep perimeter shot with 14 seconds left in the quarter. Team Jamison held on to a 17-9 lead as they entered the first intermission.

In the second quarter, Plumlee picked up right where he left off, dominating in the post and putting in an early jam. Wilkerson continued to find his way to the free throw line, hitting all six of his free throws in the second period. N.C. State's Scott Wood hit a three for Team 212 with 50 seconds to go to cut Team Jamison's lead, but his team still trailed by four at the half.

Curry took over the game in the second half, as he immediately went off on a scoring rampage. He showed his versatility on both ends, knocking down three pointers, driving to the basket, hitting the mid-range jumper and even rejecting a Landon Clement shot out of bounds. Plumlee followed on a rare Curry miss to extend Team Jamison's lead even further. By the end of the quarter, they held a 50-35 advantage.

Plumlee and Curry proceeded to build onto their lead in the fourth quarter, but Team 212's Charles Futrell stepped up to provide some scoring for his team. Despite Curry's 22 point effort, Futrell slammed down a reverse dunk at the end of the quarter for two of his 20 points. Team Jamison still rolled away with a 73-59 win.

CJ Wilkerson can FLY out of the gym! I'm really impressed by his talent. Team 212 plays well together, but it seems like they can never put enough points on the board to get a win. Seth Curry and Miles Plumlee looked great for the Devils.
